One of the problems is...

...that I'm not a very good blog writer. I wish I could write brilliant, witty and erudite posts that would make people laugh, and say "Hey, what a great idea! Some random geek girl in England is trying to get Wil Wheaton to come to her birthday party! This is so cool, I'd better tell all my friends!"

Alas and alack, I am not gifted with this ability, and I fear that most people who have read this have just clicked onto something more interesting, and forgotten about this blog completely.

What can I offer Wil Wheaton?

A day of rpgs and card games, a whole load of geeky people to hang out with, and vegetarian food.

I also promise not to geek out too much.

And we have cute pets.

So why do it then?

I've said in previous posts that I don't really expect this to work, so why on earth am I doing it?

Because it's fun.

Because it would be so truly awesome if I actually got Wil Wheaton to my 30th birthday party.

Because if I managed to get a nicely-worded "no thanks" that would still be really cool.

Because... Just because.

Why Wil Wheaton?

Because his motto is "Don't be a dick"

Because he's my geek hero

Because my introduction to Star Trek was The Next Generation, when it premiered in the UK

Becuase he's WIL FRAKKING WHEATON, and he is AWESOME, OK?

I know it's unlikely

Yes, of course I know it's unlikely that Wil Wheaton will come to my birthday party, we're on opposite sides of the Atlantic and he's a busy, famous guy, but hey, I'm having so much fun doing this that I don't mind. I sincerely hope I can get him to come (there will be gaming, vegetarian food, lots of geeky friends etc.) but even if not I'll have had fun trying. To anyone who reads this: Please spread the word on Twitter, LJ, Facebook, etc. Can we get this to go viral?!

What is Get Wil Wheaton?

The Internet is really awesome. Well technically it's a tool that can be used for good or evil (or awesome) but I've seen so many awesome things, and I want to try and harness this awesome.

On my next birthday, in a few month's time, I will turn 30.

I'm going to have a gaming birthday.

I'm going to invite Wil Wheaton to come to my birthday party.

It seems fairly impossible, but hey, this is the Internet.

So: Dear Wil Wheaton, I think you are really awesome and you are my geek hero. Please could you come to my gaming birthday party? I'm vegetarian, and can even provide vegan food if needed. (I've made vegan cheesecake that has had meat eaters clamouring for more)
